I am not one to spend a lot of money on any one item, unless I have no choice, like with electronics for example. Thus, when I shop for clothes, I always gotta find deals with name brands, or else I just shop at stores like H&M or Forever21. But let me tell you about one of my favorite places. Ever been to Rugged Wearhouse? Well, it's not there, but it's the sister company, it's called Gabriel Brothers . It's about 1.5 hours away from me (in Winchester, VA), but it's been totally worth it every time I go, AND it makes for a good road trip! I always get a ton of cute clothes for extremely cheap there. They have everything from housewares (sans furniture), tons of clothes for all ages and sizes, lots of shoes, accessories and even snack packs. I used to get hesitant about going cuz of the long haul, but it has never disappointed me, I've always left with plenty. One thing to keep in mind though, is that you gotta make sure the stuff isn't ripped or stained.
Since I just got my tax return and paid off all my debt, I figured why not treat myself to some clothes? After all, I am still not back to my old size, so the old clothes don't all fit. I just want to give you an idea of the prices, and show you some pictures. Note: normally my pictures are at least a little bit more professional looking, but I'm allowed to have a ghetto picture once in a while, right? I got 5 shirts, 2 cardigans, 2 named brand jeans, 2 casual pants, and 3 jackets (one made of all silk) for $100.
